A hot summer’s day

It’s a hot summer’s day
One of those days
When the tip of my fingers feels numb
When sunlight melts onto my skin
All is damp

I see clouds drift away
Not letting me catch a glimpse of darkness
We find peace in the evening shadows
As the world closes in on itself
Tucked between desire and broken tenderness

We find shelter in the hidden corners of time
And bright
Bright are the hopes
That vanish softly in our sleep
